St. Kateri Tekakwitha, ora pro nobis!
“Her beatification should remind us that we are all called to a life of holiness, for in Baptism, God has chosen each one of us ‘to be holy and spotless and to live through love in his presence’ (Eph. 1:4). Holiness of life – union with Christ through prayer and works of charity – is not something reserved to a select few among the members of the Church. It is the vocation of everyone.”
- St. John Paul II, on the Occasion of Kateri Tekakwitha’s Beatification in 1980
